Travel to the Vibrant Italian Paradise Within Your budget
Situated near Italy's west coast, in the central region of the country, Rome exudes art, history, culture and food. It is the perfect place to savor the la dolce vita lifestyle. Just as you might have heard the famous saying, "Rome wasn't built in a day", you can imagine that one day is not enough to visit all Rome's beauties – imposing ruins, authentic pizzerias, blooming gardens, and more. A longer holiday will help you delight all of your senses after your flight to Rome.
Italy's capital is one of the most visited capitals in the world and for good reasons. In fact, travelers come here for a wide array of reasons. But be it they want to see one of the Seven Wonders of the Middle Ages (the Colosseum) or they just want to walk around the picturesque streets, all visitors find in Rome a city that never ceases to impress.
While enjoying Rome's details like the crowded narrow streets, hidden corners, and the smell of fresh pizza just taken out of the oven, you will pass by imposing ancient sites and unravel the history of the Roman Empire step-by-step, unfolding in front of your eyes. The ruins of ancient Rome can be easily seen by any visitor. The Colosseum, the Pantheon, the Roman Forum and the Palatine Hill cannot be missed, especially if you're roaming around the center of the city.
Furthermore, Fontana di Trevi's legend accompanies its beauty. It is said that if you throw a coin in the Trevi Fountain, you will come back to Rome. Another legend is tied to the Mouth of Truth (Bocca della Verità), located in the Church of Santa Maria in Cosmedin. It was believed to eat the hands of liars during the 4th century.
The heart of Rome is embodied in the Vatican, a state within a state, wherein the Pope looks after the Christian world. Saint Peter's Basilica, a masterpiece of Renaissance architecture, accepts all visitors – including those who don't want to enter Vatican City itself.
Even though the whole city offers attractions for both young and old people, Trastevere is the place where the nightlife blossoms. And before you go to a party, you can relax in Orto Botanico di Roma, where you can see more than 60 bamboo species and hide away from the city's hustle and bustle.
When it comes to food, the Italian cuisine is a cuisine renowned all over the world. Pizza was invented in Italy and Rome is a city true to its legacy. The neighborhood trattorias make you feel like a true Roman but the five-star restaurants can reinstate the unique feeling of class that Rome gives you.
The best time to travel to Rome is during spring and autumn. From April to June and between September and October, you will be able to avoid the hot summers and still catch many events and festivals.
